David H. Gibson Statement


Artist Statement
Born in 1939 in Louisville Kentucky, David Gibson is primarily a self-taught photographer. Years of developing and refining his photographic technique have afforded him much recognition, especially for his panoramic landscapes of Texas and the Four Corners region. He has also photographed extensively in Ireland, a project for which he received a grant from the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in 1995. He has exhibited widely in both group and solo exhibitions, and his work is a part of several permanent public and corporate collections such as the Amon Carter Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Gibson's luminous black-and-white landscapes demonstrate a remarkable sensitivity to light and mood. Dramatic clouds, imminent storms and an occasional lighting strike dot Gibson's awe-inspiring settings. His images invite the viewer to share in a reverence for place and light, just as the prints themselves reflect his devotion to the art of printmaking.
